Q.

Meningitis vaccination

My baby is turning 6 months i took her to the govermental clinic for immization. She received first injection on her right arm and polio drops right after birth. Then polio drops and injections on both thighs at six weeks, and at ten weeks and then at fourteen weeks. Do you think i should take her for meningitis vaccination, because i only have to take her to the clinic again when she is 9 months old. Please advise me as she is sick and feverish and we did take her to a doctor and the doctor said she is fine.

Your baby should have the meningitis immunisation done, but she cannot go until her fever has settled.
